little mermaid: disobey father, sleep with a random man you just meet and your father will still love you. Disney is the devil in disguise. monitor what your children watch.

The land of stories by Cris colfer was surprisingly accurate to the originals and pulls them all together into one big world. It's a great book check it out

I think it's a nice story and could've totally been a direct adaptation, from Disney. Disney's Hunchback is much darker than this. Hans' Mermaid even has a positive message and happy ending.

John, I remember the ending differently. The one I recall is she dissolves in to see foam, back where she belongs.

These Disney stories are really cool. I remember reading a Little Mermaid story like the original before, but instead of the happy ending where she has a chance to earn a soul and go to heaven, she just dies forever, and her sisters mourn the loss. Other than that, I think just about everything is the same. I really like learning the original stories for the stories that we've always known, it's really cool seeing how the evolve (and become more kid friendly) over time.

Goshh.. never knew little mermaid had to go through all these.. surely these are a little dark n practical tales .. maybe not appropriate for children until they get to know the real deal of the world.. I really want to see more videos like these.. keep creating more .. love from India 💞💞 💞💞 💞💞 💞
